Nurses in 911 Program

Program Overview

The Nurses in 911 (NI911) Grant Program enacted by SB21-156 provides funding to help implement a program that allows emergency medical service providers to adopt protocols and strategies to triage patients and redirect non-emergency patients to healthcare settings other than an emergency department.


Applicants must be publicly funded 911 answering points equipped and staffed on a 24-hour basis to receive and process 911 calls.

Allowable Use

The program funds may be used to help divert incoming 911 calls that do not require emergency medical service to other types of medical care.
